Why the hell would the police need to be involved to figure out if a kid was looking for trouble?
That religious persecution happened as a result of their being atheists
Doesn't follow. In typical fundamentalist religious societies, religious persecution happens for all religions except the state religion. Religious persecution happens as a result of the leaders being psychopaths. Atheist psychopaths simply believe in one less God than religious psychopaths, and therefore persecute one more religion.
Evidence is not on your side. Recent research indicates that kids with a religious upbringing are less altruistic than kids with an a-religious upbringing. Also, religious kids are more likely to condemn other people's shortcomings more harshly (big surprise).
If, as you state, religion is the prison to keep sociopaths in check, it might turn out that, analogously with criminals in prison, religion is the place where sociopaths become more experienced.
Why don't you get your head out of your ass and understand that the days of being a Windows-only-shop are over and you will have to support a stable infrastructure without having full control of the clients that are there. You still need to provide services, yet you do not have airtight control over your clients. Maybe you should educate yourself and look at some real solutions instead of the Windows lock-in you're so used to? My organization has the exact same problem. We have moved on and use Apple/Linux all over the place. IT has no clue how to support it, as all they know is point-and-click Windows that won't work with anything else. This is the same IT that nearly killed an acquired development office by refusing to support the linux development boxes on their precious network, forcing a great workforce to ditch their linux machines and run Windows. We lost half of the developers before we found out about this idiocy and put a stop to it.
You're a service. You serve, not command.
